LOL, yeah also when asked if he was real, I would say no, I am actually working him with this string right here ( and showed them the end of the leash).

The World is a Better Place when one knows that an Amazon has your back (shoulder)! That is ever more true when that Amazon is Salty!!!

Great Photo Al!

Re: Right now Salty is.....

Salty's a harness veteran now?!? Most impressive, Al! I know you and Salty both put a LOT of work into making that happen, so congratulations!

ALl in all he was a very good boy, didnt bite any children and was pretty mellow.
What happens at a pirate event? I love the sea and go whale watching as often as my budget will permit. Due to recent vet bills and a sudden and somewhat unexpected parrot acquisition, that may be awhile.

With his harness, is it safe for Salty to ride a boat? I guess that depends upon where you are. The waters of Monterey Bay can be quite rough. I can imagine you and Salty on warm calm seas dotted with islands of white sand.

I am impressed with your patience. You are so good with Salty and he obviously responds very well to you. I love the slide trick and his silly laugh. The harness may very well be a more impressive trick. For that one, I'm going to need your patience. I'm so sure my baby's a girl, I got a pink harness. For her sake I hope I'm right. XD

Back when Gabby and I were in college, each dorm had to put together some kind of float and that float had to include feathers because the school mascot was a bird. We were Dorm I, so I recommended a pirate theme with a boat float. Gabby provided the feathers. I was the captain of the boat and when I asked which dormitory was the best, everyone replied, "I, I, captain."

Yeah, it was a little cheesy, but I thought it should have won the contest. Feathers were an integral part of our float and they were on a living bird. All the winning float did was take a handful of feathers and throw them in the air at their presentation. The feathers had nothing to do with their float. They must have won because their float was better-designed. Ours was better-themed and made more sense. Cheesy sense, but sense.

We need a yellow-headed Amazon emoji for the Saltys, yellow crowns, Panamas, double yellowheads and yellow napes.

Re: Right now Salty is.....

Pirate festivals. THere are a few different kinds, and some kinda mush them all together.

a) Hard core - so everything is period correct ( roughly 1680 to about 1740). Camps, clothing, music, vendors. Generally these are for the hardcore history enthusiast - the ppirate version of guys dressing up like Cicil War soldiers and having a battle.

b) Polyester Pirate event - So lots of lower level costuming - everything from the halloween store costumes to hard core. Some Renaissance Festival spill over at these, and they are the most common type of event. Camps are still required to be close to period correct ( no pop up tents or Colemann stoves visible)

c) Combination of the 2 above - our favorite ones. No one is stitch counting - what we call the insane ones who want to know iif your breeches have hand poured pewter buttons.

We can play music for all 3 types, doing real actual sea music from 1680 ( but boring) or we can do songs from every pirate movie ever made ( more fun but too commercial)
or we can play any one of the 120 original songs and fiddle tunes that are pirate related.

The Brigands: Pirate Music and Black Powder Cannons: Home for a closer look.

I went to the Brigands website and learned they are not so much pirates as "preemptive marine salvage experts"...
